Ran this utility last night and got questionable results.
1) on xp pro, I got a nice display of all the fragmented files that the
utility would address. With Vista sp1 (home basic), the list of fragmented
files was empty.
2) on the vista machine: clicked on the defragment on reboot. Rebooted the
machine and it did indeed go through some process upon reboot. The results
screen was too brief to read and appears to leave no log file. I think that
it reported 1 fragment each in all the sections it addressed.
3) re-ran the utility and file list still will not display (same as 1).
4) run Defraggler (defraggler.com). Shows over 500 fragments in
At this point, I'm taking a step back. Run chkdsk from right click on C:
icon/tools. both option check boxes set. Still running at this point (and
wife's ticked off that I am denying her the computer...). When this
completes. Will try the Vista defragmenter in command line mode.
I may yet have to delete some DVD images from the drive to make more free
space to work with. Will post results as they evolve.
